    The restaurant serves rib-sticking, chile-inflected grub of the greasy-finger, tingling-lips variety. Be sure to check out the San Antonio-style puffy tacos. 続きを見る

    Looks better on TV's Unique Eats - "Chingo Bling" - A smoked chicken stuffed Poblano pepper dish with an enchilada and a tamale. See video here at: http://www.ulive.com/video/houstons-finest-tex-mex

    Nice retro Tex-Mex. I'm a fan of spicier salsa, but other than that the tex-mex standards are outstanding. The fajitas are great, and so are the enchiladas. I like that they have pork as a filling.

    Best tex mex in Houston. Great quesadillas, fajitas, micheladas and margaritas. Half off for Montrose residents on Mondays.

    The Tex-Mex here is perfect as a post-midnight meal, and the owners know it — El Real is open to 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

    This is true, classic Tex Mex of the highest order. That means you get a lot of mild chili gravy, cheese, and lard. Queso, guacamole, salsa, and good portions. Not a fancy restaurant, but good.

    Try the Fajita Taco Salad! El Real gets extra points for using fajita beef and offering fragrant dressings such as jalapeño lime and cilantro ranch.

    Salsa was fresh and roasted, yet, not enchanting. Service was 110 on point. Maybe over vigilant. Fajitas were tasty and soft. Pico de gallo was my favorite thing here.

    We got great service even though we came just before closing and stayed well after. Very grateful for that, and for the excellent frozen margarita!

    Milk Shake “No Minors” combines Brandy & Kahlua with ice cream in the very best way. Do yourself a favor: Skip the margarita and order this shake, for it is grand. 続きを見る

    I had the combo plate with a puffy taco...beef enchaladas and a pork tamalie...it was really good stuff...it is a bit pricey for tex mex

    Did not enjoy it. A friend recommended it. Fell short of expectations. Well short.

    El Real's chunky, beefy chili con carne is pleasantly darker and richer than the kind served at most Tex-Mex haunts.

    The menu isn't final, nor the room, but if you keep a close eye on the Twitter feed, you'll notice a few hints - such as The Tampiqueña Plate was originally served at the Tampico Club in Mexico City. 続きを見る

    Food is good, service is great but be prepared for spicy as everything they make is higly spiced. However, if you talk to the chef he can make something special for you.

    A pitcher of margaritas will fill about 7-8 glasses so it's a great bargain, but you will get a little sloppy!

    Don't come any time after 8. The waiters start to not pay attention because they are focused in doing their side work and not you, the guest. The manager was nice and helpful. But don't come after 8.
